Man theres ALOT of pearch in Green

8 posts in this topic

Went out and tried, without luck to catch some fish on Green. I know its a big lake with tons of structure but my cousin and I Poped around to different spots and all we saw was Pearch about 4-6" long we fished in 20 to 40 foot spots but didnt see anything else. We had a camera and no wonder why other fish arent hungry. Any other pointers. Wouldent Walleye or Northern move into these areas near prime time to feed? The bad thing is talking heads here are more tight lipped than the Walleye whistle.gif I'll find some eventully. Keep on poppin.

I've been seeing thirty to forty walleyes a night on my camera and its a good night to catch one or two of them crazy.gif I've tried everything possible but they want nothing to do with it. I figured with the warmer weather that they would be snappin but that wasnt the case. So who knows??? But if you wanna see fish, try and find the deepest weedlines ya can.

I have seen more walleyes than bass some days with the underwater camera. Eyehead nailed it. They are usually in the weeds!

A few times when we go out lakeviewing looking for bass on screen than camera we have been impressed with the walleye numbers.

This is in summer putting the cameras down when we would spot fish on screen.

Like one guy said after we dropshotted for bass one July day[Green Lake would be a great bass lake if you could keep walleye off line]

BlackJack, I use the Aqua-Vu Scout SRT. I rarely use it after dark unless im fishing crappies, but i'd say you can see around 15ft after dark give or take a couple feet. I've never caught a walleye after dark with it down so I usually pull it up around sunset.

With the Aqua view scout, how do you handle the direction of the camera?

The two biggest issues that I've seen with cameras is the snowstorm affect after dark and the lack of ability to control the camera.

With the Scout SRT, there is no snowstorm effect. Its as clear a picture during the day as it is at night. When I bought it they had a deal where you got there Ice Pod with it and that helps to position the camera pretty good. I think there like $15 or something like that.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
